“Am here to unite our people for development, we need to put this constituency on the national and international development agenda. Our constituency must play a lead role in the region and the country as whole. We have resources we need marketing platforms.
“We need an MP who will play the role of an advocate for the chiefs, queen mothers, the youth, men and women, vulnerable, religious and traditional leaders, our farmers and everyone in the constituency and Alfred Obeng-Boateng is the people’s choice,” he said.

He said the dynamics for Election 2020 were different and NPP as a ruling party must upscale its political message. “We have a marketable Presidential Candidate…President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, but we need winnable Parliamentary Candidates at the constituency levels to marshal the people to support us for victory 2020”.
Mr Obeng Boateng who is the Chief Executive Officer of Approachers Group of Companies appealed to all aspiring candidates to campaign with decorum devoid of personality attacks, acrimony and unfounded allegations.
He said, “Our people in the constituency have called me to represent them in Parliament, I have heeded the call. I have not been called to attack or insult anyone, am here to undertake a clean campaign and bring development to our people”.
Mr Obeng Boateng over the years has been undertaking development projects in the Constituency and most recently donated three brand new pick-up vehicles to the police in Bibiani, Sefwi Bekwai and Sefwi Wiawso to enhance their work and also gave a 110 KVA Generator valued at GH¢120,000.00 to the Bibiani Government Hospital.
